Portland ‘antifa’ Thugs Cry when Identities are Exposed

The Cancel Culture is doing a big boomerang on the left.

We know one thing about many of these rioters – that they love to commit crimes under soft-on-crime district attorneys who will not prosecute them, but when they get caught some of them cry like babies. The New York Post reported:

An Antifa leader known as Commander Red was busted carrying a flamethrower to a Wisconsin Black Lives Matter rally — and “dropped into the fetal position and began crying” when stopped by cops, officials said.

Matthew Banta, 23, is “known to be a violent Antifa member who incites violence in otherwise relatively peaceful protests,” a criminal complaint in his Green Bay arrest record insisted, according to WBAY.

Here’s one more, from The Gateway Pundit:

A Portland Antifa militant cried like a baby as law enforcement arrested her Friday night.

According to reporter Andy Ngo, the woman seen crying is 19-year-old Olivia Jane Van Norman.

She jumped out of an ambulance after being arrested at the violent Portland Antifa riot last night.

According to Portland officials, she had a bleeding abrasion on her head and was treated by a Portland Fire and Rescue field medic before being transported by ambulance.

“However, after the ambulance pulled away from the scene, she jumped out of the ambulance and left.”

Olivia Jane Van Norman has residences in both Portland and Redondo Beach, California. She’s a student at the expensive private Reed College, according to Andy Ngo.

Update: I can confirm that the woman who jumped out of the ambulance after being arrested at the violent #antifa Portland protest is Olivia Jane Van Norman, 19. She has residences in both Portland & Redondo Beach, Cal. She’s a student at the expensive private Reed College.

Perhaps you have noticed that the Portland riots have subsided recently. There are three reasons for this.

*State police in Oregon have been federally deputized. This means that they can charge rioters with federal crimes, instead of the rioters going into a local court and getting released by soft-on-crime district attorney Mike Schmidt. These federal crimes, like assaulting a federal officer or damaging federal property, can carry stiff penalties. And when the rioters in Portland hear about their comrades potentially going to jail for 5 years, it affects them, you can be sure. They like to act bold, but many of them are little children (as explained above).

*Some rioters have gone to other cities to cause trouble. Others are lighting forest fires in rural Oregon. There have been many arson arrests all over Washington, Oregon and California including ‘antifa’ or ‘antifa’-inspired criminals.

*But there is something else happening. Conservative internet journalist Andy Ngo has been posting pictures and names online of Portland arrestees. This is legal since these arrests are public record. And now some of the thugs are losing their jobs and being called out. And they don’t like it one bit. Poor dears…

Here are excerpts from an Oregon newspaper called Willamette Week about this phenomenon, with a Nikitas3.com comment after each excerpt:

Willamette Week reports: On Aug. 7, Black activist Ragina Gray was tackled by Portland police at a protest and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and interfering with an officer.

That same day, conservative Portland activist Andy Ngo shared Gray’s name and mug shot on Twitter

“Gray, 30, is charged with interfering with an officer, resisting arrest and more,” Ngo wrote on Twitter. “She was arrested at the violent antifa protest in Portland and quickly bailed out. Gray is frequently photographed with kids at protests and rants about white terrorism.” The photo was retweeted by 475 people.

Twelve nights later, on Aug. 19, a man showed up on the doorstep of Gray’s mother’s eastside home. “He was sweaty and nervous looking, and he asked for Ragina by name,” says Lucinda Fisher, Gray’s mom. “He mentioned [Gray’s] son, and I noticed he had a gun in his hand.” Fisher slammed the door and called the police.

Gray’s children, 9 and 4, whom she brought to protests with her prior to her arrest, fear for her life.

“They’re scared that someone’s going to kill me,” Gray says. “My first instinct is to say, ‘No, that’s not going to happen.’ But there’s a huge risk.”

Nikitas3.com comment: Well, whaddya know… Her kids are scared after she has been causing the people of Portland to feel scared for months now. In short, the Cancel Culture is making a big boomerang on the people who invented it. This is great news.

Willamette Week reports: Ngo’s prominence has been catapulted by Portland’s protests. He is editor-at-large at a Canadian conservative website called The Post Millennial and is also a regular guest on Fox News. Last year, he was assaulted at a Portland (riot), where masked assailants punched and kicked him in the head.

Ngo has more than 700,000 followers on Twitter, many of whom share the belief that Portland protesters are a threat to national security.

But Gray believes Ngo and his followers are watching her. And she is not the only one. Willamette Week has spoken with two others who have been arrested at Portland protests and had their names and mug shots tweeted by Ngo, and claim their lives have since been disrupted.

“We’ve been lying low, and to be honest, we’ve been staying at home with the blinds closed,” says Phillip Wenzel, whose mug shot was shared by Ngo on Aug. 15. “I can get over Twitter trolls, but what gives me the most pause is the 1% of them that have genuine threats.”

Critics call Ngo’s posts “doxxing,” or posting personal information about people to make their lives unpleasant.

But what Ngo is doing is legal. The mug shots are public records. The arrests happened. And Ngo told WW that it is his “duty” to report on protesters who have been arrested, “given the risk that violence and riots present to the public.”

Nikitas3.com comment: After leftists have been ‘doxxing’ innocent people like Trump supporters and conservative journalists, and even having mobs show up at their homes, the shoe is on the other foot but with one huge difference – the leftists who are being doxxed have been arrested for engaging in criminal activity.

Willamette Week reports: Portland couple Erin and Phillip Wenzel started their evening Friday, Aug. 14, as they have more than 10 times before that.

They donned their protest outfits: full gas respirators, masks, bike helmets, and a bulletproof vest for Philip, who had been in the front of protests as part of the drum line. Erin, a medic toting a first aid kit, usually settled in a few rows behind the line of drummers.

That night, Phillip was arrested when the two of them were sandwiched between two lines of officers during a smoke-filled, chaotic confrontation captured on video that shows several protesters cowering under yellow shields as cops push them to the ground.

A video of Wenzel’s interaction with police shows him shielding his face on the ground as a half-dozen cops tackle him. He was arrested, charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, interfering with police, and disorderly conduct, and released the next day.

The next morning, Ngo posted his mug shot on his Twitter account, writing that Wenzel was “arrested at the violent #antifa protest.”

Ngo also posted a biography of Wenzel from the law firm where he works as a paralegal. In Twitter responses on the thread, users added threatening comments and more personal information about the Wenzels, including the names and ages of members of his extended family.

One comment read, “I’m writing a letter to his employer right now.” Another wrote, “Divorce and custody court paralegal scumbag who isn’t even smart enough to be an attorney. Lol.”

The Wenzels quickly deactivated all their social media accounts: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.

The next day, Phillip Wenzel received a voicemail threat on his cellphone from somebody named John in Michigan, who said, “I’ll have you know I’m 7 foot and 280 pounds.”

The Wenzels alerted their employers. On Aug. 18, three days after Ngo posted the mug shot, Phillip Wenzel’s boss at Elizabeth Christy Law Firm sent him a letter that the firm had received 50 threatening or harassing communications since his arrest.

“Because you have chosen to engage in activism that has resulted in violence, physical injuries, and negative publicity for [the law firm], there is now a major distraction from the business we are doing, a threat to my ability to gain new business, and a threat to our employees’ safety,” Christy wrote in an email provided to WW.

Both Wenzels say they now suffer from anxiety. Wenzel shaved his beard to change his appearance and now wears a hat when he walks his dog.

Nikitas3.com comment: Yes, they suffer anxiety like tens of millions of Americans do as a result of the criminal behavior of the Wenzels and others like them in Portland and other cities. What goes around comes around.

Willamette Week reports: April Epperson, who works at a Northeast Portland public school, is another protester who was arrested for disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer on Aug. 24 and was greeted that same day by a Ngo tweet sharing her mug shot and Facebook profile picture with part of the caption reading, “Like others recently arrest[ed], she works with children at an elementary school.” Several commenters on the subsequent Twitter thread shared the name of the school.

On Aug. 29, an email arrived in her school inbox: Attached were her Facebook profile photo and a picture of a toad in a dress with a caption reading, “So fucking badass with your face covered? We can’t wait to come to your employer and do the exact same fucking thing you do to cops!”

Epperson alerted the school about the email. That weekend, the school canceled a laptop distribution event scheduled the following Monday, Aug. 31. A school text blast sent to families read, “We are pausing [device distribution] for tomorrow. We will resume as soon as possible and alert you when that is. As a reminder, school grounds, including the playground, are closed.”

Although the school did not explain its decision, Epperson believes the laptop distribution was postponed because of threats. (Portland Public Schools didn’t respond to WW’s request for comment.) Still, the messages continued. “The school started getting a bunch of phone calls and emails,” Epperson says. “People emailed [some staff members] my mug shot and told them I was arrested.”

One email, sent Sept. 1 from a secure email address using the name “Jennifer Hartless” and shared with WW, includes a screenshot of Ngo’s tweet of Epperson’s mug shot. The photo is captioned, “This type of behavior seems a little unbecoming for a school teacher. Are standards any higher than this?”

Nikitas3.com comment: Epperson should be fired. She should not be around children. She is dangerous.

Willamette Week reports: Tim Gleason, professor of journalism at the University of Oregon, says Ngo’s posts of mug shots are dangerous because of his targeted audience.

“There’s some legitimacy to a claim of informing the public. But we have a pattern with this individual that his interest is in provoking violent reactions and doxxing,” says Gleason. “It’s a particular subset of conservative Twitter, and he knows that’s who he’s talking to.”

Nikitas3.com comment: All of a sudden these lefty journalism professors are concerned about the law. They make no mention of the danger of rioting and looting, or of ‘doxxing’ innocent people like Trump supporters. But once a lawless thug gets the same treatment, they turn into concerned scholars. What a joke.

Willamette Week reports: Ragina Gray continues to attend protests, despite threatening messages she receives on Instagram and Twitter. She says she deletes them as soon as she gets them, but says “people are calling me a terrorist, calling me a n—–.” And the messengers, she says, are “Mostly white men. All white men.”

Nikitas3.com comment: She keeps protesting. Amazing. So she must suffer the consequences.

Where’s the National Media When Blacks Kill Whites?

Here is a story from The Gateway Pundit about a black male with a long criminal record who murdered a white student with no provocation whatsoever.

This is what the anti-white rhetoric of the media and of ‘black lives matter’ produces. This is what it is intended to produce.

A 60-year-old black man has been arrested for the murder of a 19-year-old UC Berkeley student.

On Monday, the Alameda County district attorney’s office filed felony charges against Berkeley resident Tony Walker for the June murder of UC Berkeley student Seth Smith.

According to authorities, Smith was walkining in southwest Berkeley when Walker approached him from behind and shot him at close range in the back of the head. Berkleyside reports that law enforcement has said the random killing was done without any warning or provocation.

“On Monday, the DA’s office charged Walker with murder and several other felony firearms violations, according to court records reviewed by Berkeleyside. Walker, a felon on probation who lived within a few hundred feet of where the homicide happened, at Dwight Way and Valley Street, was prohibited from having guns or ammunition because of his criminal record,” Berkeleyside reports.

Walker’s criminal record spans decades and includes assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Smith was pronounced dead at the the scene.
